Phionah had a successful caesarian section and delivered a beautiful, healthy baby girl! She began post-operative treatment and is in good health. Her baby is also breastfeeding well.

Phionah shared, “I am so happy to see that I am leaving the hospital with a fully covered bill and our healthy girl. I was worried about where I could start from, as I never left anything behind, not even a goat to sell. I am so happy to see that my delivery went well.”

Phionah is a 33-year-old married mother of one who is expecting a new baby. She studied nursing, but unfortunately has not yet found a job in her field. Instead, she has a small pharmacy that helps to support her family. Her husband worked as a primary school teacher, but lost his job due to the pandemic. He is considering working as a farmer to help support the family.

During one of Phionah’s pregnancy care visits, she was told that her baby is in a breech position, or feet first. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Phionah deliver her baby safely. It was recommended that she deliver via Caesarean section to ensure a healthy and safe delivery for her and her baby. On November 4th, she will deliver her baby via C-Section at AMH’s care center. Now, she needs help raising $252 to fund her delivery and care.

Phionah shared, ‘‘I am not financially stable to afford the surgery. The little income I make is only enough to sustain my family. Your support will be very much appreciated.’’
